While nominations for the 84th Academy Awards have yet to be announced, projected 2012 frontrunners George Clooney, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Viola Davis, Tilda Swinton, and Christopher Plummer (with special guest Uggie, the scene-stealing pooch from The Artist) take a moment to reflect about their high-profile projects and weigh in on their chances at Oscar gold with Newsweek.

Via Newsweek's iPad app, you can watch the entire roundtable and go exclusively behind the scenes of the one-of-a-kind get together featuring candid moments such as Clooney and Fassbender playing a lighthearted round of ping pong, Theron channeling Young Adult's Mavis with some very unladylike behavior and screen legend Christopher Plummer cutting a rug to some groovy house music.
